    Met Charles at Macy’s and bought the shirt for its fit, fabric, and style. I have enjoyed wearing it.

    The shirt is great. However the holes for the buttons holes are kind of small, and it is not as easy as other shirts to button up. The color and style are fantastic.

    Please make Short and Tall in other styles


    The Short version works really well for my son but I wish it comes in other styles as well.

    Easy to care for


    I bought this shirt directly from the designer at a local fair in Austin, TX. It was great to meet the designer and definitely recommend visiting one of these fairs if you have a chance. Charles altered the waist to fit me more closely and mailed it to me in a very timely manner. Highly recommend.

    Not black and not lightweight


    I was looking for a black shirt but when I got this, I actually kept it because I quite like the texture and the fit. If you are looking for a pitch black shirt, this wouldn’t be it. It’s not just black, I found it more interesting because of the texture. Keep up the good work.

    A nice simple shirt.


    Well-made and fits well, very nice fabric. It’s brushed only on the outside. I live in San Francisco and this is perfect, it's breathable and can keep me warm also.

    Cool Black Flannel but not for me.


    The weight feels like a flannel to me. I sweat a lot so I don’t think this will work for where I live. I ended up exchanging for lighter shirt, the fit is pretty consistent. Good responsive service.

    Go for the Tall version if you are over 6’ 2’’


    The tall version fits me perfectly in the sleeves and the shirt length. Everything even the neck works, this is amazing. The fabric is very comfortable and nice white button contrast too.

    Super soft fabric


    Not sure if it’s me or my shirt but my wife wants to hug me all the time now, especially when I have this shirt on. I appreciate the softness of the fabric and I think it’s best not to put it into the dryer because I don’t want the shirt to pill and shrink. Hang dry seems to be the right choice so far.

    The short version is perfect for me.


    I’m 5’6’’ so the short version works great. I no longer need to tailor the shirt. I’m very happy about this, thank you.

    My go-to Black shirt


    I really like that the fabric is so soft and it’s not pure black. It’s more textured and makes it look very sophisticated. Since it’s different color on the other side of the fabric, it’s cool when I roll up my sleeves too. Overall, I’m really impressed with the quality and the service.
